WHAT IS DRY NEEDLING ? 

Dry Needling Face.jpg

Dry Needling is a treatment that involves a very thin needle being pushed through the skin in order to stimulate a trigger point.

SO WHAT IS A TRIGGER POINT ? 

Trigger Points also known as muscle "knots" are sensitive spots in soft tissue , and too many of them will cause "myofascial pain syndrome".  Trigger Points are hyperirritable spot, palpable nodule in the taut bands of our skeletal muscles. 

Sometimes direct compression on the muscle will cause local tenderness, local twitch response and referred pain. 

Dry needling therapy will focus stimulating a specific trigger point and evokes a healing response in painful neuromuscular conditions.

WHY IS IT CALLED "DRY NEEDLING" ?

Because there is no solution injected into the body.  It is the use of extremely thin solid filament needle inserted into the muscles. 

The goals of this treatment are : 

  • To Reduce Muscular Pain 

  • To Improve Flexibility 

  • To Increase Range of Motion

IS DRY NEEDLING THE SAME AS ACUPUNCTURE ?
